Results for Learning Designs and Teaching Strategies
This collaborative project between Victoria University of Wellington and WelTec aims to assist tutors at New Zealand polytechnics to meet the literacy needs of all students, and in particular, Pasifika students.
A collaborative project that will result in the delivery of a professional development programme to provide enhanced support for educators working with Māori and Pasifika learners in adult literacy and numeracy.
This project developed and evaluated a suite of scenarios that can be used as real-time role-plays that enhance communication skills. Through these role-plays, learners can gain experience in realistic and challenging situations where they need to rapidly respond in an uncertain environment, and effectively communicate with a range of stakeholders.
Evaluating the effectiveness of support interventions for dyslexic learners in multiple learning environments
This project explores what interventions work best to assist adults with dyslexia in multiple environments including the home, classroom, and workplace.
This project seeks to identify the pedagogical success factors that make a difference for Pacific learners, and to then support and mentor colleagues to test the identified pedagogical approaches into their own programmes.
The aim of this project is to examine student’s responses in respect of their key tasks, learning outcomes and overall experience from a work-based experiential practicum programme in sport management. Understanding student’s perceptions will help to inform and change teaching practice through increased focus on specific graduate attributes and a broader range of added value aspects of WIL programmes that have been highlighted in previous research
Those involved in the teaching and learning of law students will be interested in this ongoing longitudinal study of law students. It is intended that, over the course of the study, a complete law student profile will be developed which will detail the expectations, views and experiences of students during each year of their studies and in their first years in the workforce.
This project sets out to develop strategies that will prepare occupational therapy students/new graduates to be confident evidence-based practice practitioners in a range of practice environments.
In 2012, Ako Aotearoa and the New Zealand Union of Students’ Associations commissioned Heathrose Research Ltd. to undertake research into how tertiary organisations can effectively use the voice of students to improve quality of provision.
Building of an earlier Ako Aotearoa Regional Hub Project Fund project, (Luafutu-Simpson, P. et al., 2015), this collaborative project is focused on the implementation and monitoring of a Pasifika Success Toolkit in the Canterbury tertiary education organisations (Canterbury, Lincoln University and Ara Institute of Canterbury) . The longer view is to share the successful work and generalizable findings across, ideally, sub-sectors.
